Re: Basket(t), Judkins, McMullen 1820s in TN, AL, TX

Thanks! Now the stuff from the Bone family papers makes sense. Elizabeth (Basket) Judkins had died and C. G. Judkins was a-courting someone who lived around Homer in Angelina County. There is some kind of marriage book index entry in Angelina County for C. G. Judgkins and Lavinia McClendon dated 6 Mar 1862, three days before Minerva Bone wrote "Mr Judkins braught his old lady home the other day the one that lived down at Homer". It could have been a marriage license taken out and never used -- we'd have to look at the actual document to figure it out. C. G. Judkins married a different lady in 1863 and they apparently lived a long time together. In any case, we know the Bone papers in the ETRC have information about our families.

I collected some of my information about the daughters of William and Catharine Basket. It's pretty raw and I'm not yet ready to try to interpret it. I think what happened is that one or more of the Basket daughters married into a group of families that were headed to Nacogdoches. Then the rest of the daughters followed with their husbands and families. On the censuses you can see the Basket daughters tending to live right next to one another.

Okay, for what it's worth here's my collected information.

1820 Census, Maury Co. TN, page 39
William Basket 10001-2001
1 male slave 0-14, no free blacks.
No person employed in agriculture (may indicate he was not
a farmer). We can't be sure this is our William Basket, but
in 1850 our William Basket was a miller, not a farmer).

Basket, William 0100001-211001
No free blacks, no slaves.

1840 Census, Lauderdale Co. AL, page 92
Basket, Wm. 000000001 - 00210001
No slaves, no free blacks. One person employed in
manufacturing and trades. Two persons employed in

1840 Census, Lauderdale Co. AL, page 115
Jenkins[Judkins], Chs. 01001 - 20001
No slaves, no free blacks. One person employed in
manufacturing & trades. Two persons indicated as
"insane and idiots at private charge".
[I have to comment on this. All the people in the 1840 Judkins household seem to me to be accounted for on the 1850 and later censuses. None are indicated as idiotic or insane. Whoever informed the census taker, probably Elizabeth, may have been making a wry joke. Although this is strictly an imagined explanation, it kind of rings true for my family.)
